I'm almost sure that there isn't enough space to insert any material between the surfaces. But I suppose you could give it a shot.
Believe me, if you smooth out the roughness and coat it with the dry lube, it will make a world of difference.
Then it's important to rinse the unit out as well as you can after using it in the future to keep it clean and salt free.

knothead Clean the bearing surfaces or sand them with very fine sandpaper. At least 400 grit. Then use a dry lube like Sailcote on both plastic surfaces. That's about all you can do.

Old style CDI furlers

Called "reefer" Mine is in pretty sad shape, until I can afford a new furler of any mfg, is there something to can do to get it to spin easier? I think the plastic to plastic bearing surfaces are gummed up or something. I'll take it apart if we get a break in the hot weather, take a look see.. suggestions?
